News: The world is running out of wood... where did all the guitars go?

The world is running out of wood If the overlogging of the world's forests continues, countless species face extinction and our carbon emissions will skyrocket. But there is about to be another casualty in this war on wood...the acoustic guitar. If things don't change, in less than 10 years the guitar as we know it will be no more... Musicwood follows a Coalition of the world's foremost guitar makers as they attempt to save the old-growth trees of the Tongass National Forest in Alaska. To do this they will have to deal with a logging company of Native Americans who have been in the area for 10,000 years. Native Americans who've notoriously been given a raw deal from the US government. So cultures will clash. To get them to change won't be easy; it's their livelihood that's also at risk. In fact, as Chris Martin of Martin Guitars puts it, it will be “as close to a miracle as we are likely to see in our lifetime.” But the stakes are very high. At stake is the heart and soul of the acoustic guitar... the fate of the world's forests... and the fate of our world itself. Musicwood tells this story by joining the Coalition on their journey to Alaska, getting behind the scenes in the negotiations, and framing it all with a soundtrack of major acoustic guitar performances. Interviews with leading experts, a rare chance to hear the Native American perspective, and some of the most dramatic scenery in the United States. Musicwood is an ecological investigation, a cultural history and an adventurous journey to the heart of primeval forest. It is a story that you did not know was occurring. It is a story that the world needs to know about.

Tom Richardson: live4guitar fusion lesson

Tom Richardson:
Fusion lick with video/tab up at live4guitar, check it out... Lick of the week no. 16 - Fusion Lick in G minor - Live4guitar | Online Guitar Community The lick here is a Fusion lick that makes use of several techniques over a G Minor backing track. The main techniques used include economy picking and legato. The lick starts with a descending arpeggio idea. I play this using economy picking (see tab for exact picking directions) and to play the second string skipped note at the 14th fret of the 3rd string, hybrid picking is used. In the second bar there is a long run using economy picking again which creates a fluid sound. There are some big stretches here, as well as the use of 4 note per string shapes in the 3rd bar, so make sure you are warmed up properly before playing it to avoid any injury. The 4th bar finishes with a line built from G Melodic Minor and finishes on the G on the 6th string.

Guthrie Govan: Guitar Player interview

From Drop Box
What pops into your head if I ask you what the top two or three most inspiring live guitar performances are that you’ve ever witnessed? Without even thinking, I would say the most recent one was Derek Trucks. Before hearing Derek, I didn’t know a guitar could sound so vocal. With him, the guitar becomes this transparent thing, and through it we hear this great gospel singer that Derek hears in his head. Presumably, Derek can’t sing like that, but he’s made it so his guitar can. Then there was that mythical Eric Johnson show at the Marquee Club in London in the early ’90s that quite a few of us remember. I’m not much for lists, but if I had to list my top ten favorite live guitar sounds of all time, four of them were probably at that gig. Eric was just so in control of his gear and the notes he was playing. I can also mention that seeing Yngwie Malmsteen made a real impact on me. He wasn’t this academic looking guy just standing there with his music stand. He was going crazy, running around the place, and throwing his Strat while playing a million notes per second. And when he stopped and played just one note, it sounded like a violin or an opera singer. Yngwie has an incomparable vibrato, which his detractors choose to ignore. Any newer guitarists you find inspiring? There are—Alex Machacek is quite interesting— but, by and large, I am not interested in the kind of player who is often recommended to me. That player is usually someone who’s doing something a bit like what I’m doing. I want to hear things that are completely fresh to me. For instance, I’m big Bjork fan. You never really hear a guitar on her albums, but there’s something very intriguing about what she’s done with the human voice. It’s like Derek Trucks backwards. Instead of making an instrument behave like a voice, it’s the other way around. more
